ESENIN. YESENIN. Sergei
Izbrannyy Yesenin Stikhi I Poemy [Selected Verse and Poems]
Riga, Gramatu Draugs, 1928. A good copy, clean and tight. Very minor chipping to spine ends, usual browning to paper. Used; Very Good The poet Sergei Yesenin (Esenin), 'pastoral-angel' 'tavern-rake' and bard of the Soviet Empire lived a short and turbulent life but posthumously became one of the most widely-read of 20th century Russian poets. He was a founder member of the avant-garde "Imaginist" group. Branded both decadent and hooligan, anti-Soviet and Soviet hero, he was vulnerable, sinful and all too human. Tantalisingly, he was married briefly to Isadora Duncan. Esenin is described as essentially 'Russian'; he is the peasant embodying tragic pathos and the forlorn dream of a rural idyll (McVay 1998). He killed himself in a Leningrad Hotel in 1925 after a short-spanned but meteoric literary career. Hélène Heinsdorf's decorated ex-libris, pencilled note below (Could be the Polish journalist Helene Heinsdorf-Lewinson? See Sonderfahndungsliste G.B.). Paperback.
